I can confirm the bug on Cygwin 2.4.3 as well as Erik's observation

what could have changed between the versions that affects this.

Is there a difference between different versions of gs? Does the dvi output look bad as well?

Thomas says so if you look a few lines below! Also, since the dots are
placed at their default position, I definitely suspect a bug in

Hi Erik,

I looked at "testrest.dvi" with MikTex Yap and get the same output.

Hello list,

sorry for the long example, but I could not shorten more.
In bar 9 and 10 of the attached example the rests in voice "Bass"
are shifted, but the dots remain at the default position. If I
delete or shorten voice "Middle" the problem disappears.

Looks like a nasty bug. I tried it with a recent 2.5.x version as well
as with 2.4.2 and 2.4.6, and the problem doesn't appear there.

The next version 2.6 will soon be released, and the problem _might_
have been fixed there. If you upgrade to 2.6, please tell us again if
anything similar ever occurs again.


(btw: the problem could be related to the ps->pdf generation process,
I have seen displaced objects before. Could you check what the .ps or
.dvi output look like? If they look good, a solution to your problem
could be to download a newer or older version of ghostscript.)
